I was also able to get some work done during the holiday vacation from work. I've updated the book's preface, and I did a lot of research on Minneapolis population and church data during Prince's childhood (1950s--1970s). Unfortunately, it was very time-consuming and boring. Here is a little taste (click on images for better views):
Churches and Church Membership by State, County and Denomination: 1971; Minnesota; Hennepin County
As I've said in a previous post, this type of research helps me to outline the environment in which Prince grew up.
That's all for this week, folks!
Oh! One other thing--shout out to @VictoR3mix for giving me some info on a Prince website that I missed in last week's entry: mplsound.com. Check out my updated post here.
What Minneapolis-based statistics would you like to know?
